It's also well deserved after Segura's superb first half helped to anchor the Mariners infield and offense.

With the new All-Star appointments, there are now 28 first-time All-Stars (12 AL, 16 NL), 29 players (16 AL, 13 NL) age 27-or-younger and 24 foreign-born players (15 AL, 9 NL) on the 2018 All-Star rosters.
